Engaging students in research, innovation, and scholarship is the hallmark of a great research university. Through their participation in research and creative endeavors, undergraduate students become better thinkers, innovators, and problem solvers, cultivating a depth of understanding needed to make a positive difference in the world.
The CRE is leading a growing movement to involve FSU students in the highest levels of academic engagement, helping students take advantage of the very best a major research university like FSU has to offer. From supporting faculty and instructors as they include research and creative projects in their courses, to facilitating service-learning, social entrepreneurship, and research projects with community-based organizations around the world, from programming to involve underclassmen and historically underrepresented students in research and scholarship, to showcasing the work of student researchers though symposia and publications, the CRE works across the university to enhance the educational engagement of our students and the international reputation of our university.
Whether you are a member of the faculty, staff, or student body, we look forward to having you explore our website, learn more about our center, and participate in one of our many programs!
